First off, downloaded catalyst, tried Catalyst and now - love Catalyst. Apart from this beta working about as fast as snail walking backwards and some text kerning problems, it's GREAT. My question is how come I haven't seen any info in any of the design magazines about it yet? I understand it's still the first beta but in my opinion this software will be a game changer. Once Google and Adobe find a way to index swf's, I cannot imagine one designer who would not pick up this program. Most designers I know shy away from Flash because of the steep learning curve involved with Actionscript.
Anyways, I was really looking forward to reading reviews, comments and most importantly basic tutorials in Layers, Computer Arts etc but have not seen a single article... What gives???
Thanks for the great feedback!
